As business becomes more and more global, companies must operate in an increasingly strict regulatory environment. As a result, risks related to bribery, corruption and competition law violations have become one of the most pressing challenges for companies.
Fines for regulatory violations may amount to billions of yen, and investigating and improving your compliance programs can also be costly. For Japanese entities that conduct business abroad, thorough compliance with bribery, corruption, and competition laws is therefore a crucial management issue.

When the regulatory authorities initiate an investigation, it is particularly important to collect the necessary information as soon as possible, and to accurately ascertain the facts and report them promptly. The right response can work in your favour during the calculation of fines. It is important to demonstrate not only that policies and regulations are in place, but also that your existing compliance measures are functioning effectively. PwC’s forensic services practice can help you develop and implement a truly effective compliance program through our extensive knowledge and experience in Japan and abroad.
